Rio Haryanto could say goodbye to their participation in the
Formula 1 if you do not reach an agreement with the team Manor before the
start of the German Grand Prix which is being held this same week.
The pilot indonesian has signed a contract for the whole season,
but subject to successful completion of the agreed budget, which currently only
covering the first eleven races.
Haryanto, who knows the problem, created at the beginning of the year, a
popular initiative in your country to get the necessary funds and
the whole season competing with this situation in mind. The
last week, your representative stated that it was virtually
fixed, but the days pass and still no confirmation
“ultimately, it all boils down to the budget”
In statements to the british Autosport, Piers Hunnisett states that the computer
may postpone the situation for a Great Prize, what you give to
Haryanto until the end of August to find the sponsorship
need to be able to compete in the Grand Prix of Belgium, which will be held in Spa-Francorchamps. “I Hope it is
the case, in my opinion, would be a logical plan given the break of three
weeks that comes next (after Hockenheim)”.
For his part, Dave Ryan, Director of competition of the Manor, says
“you have to remember that Rio has a contract with the team until
the end of the year and you have to honor that contract. We’re giving
every opportunity to do so and work with them to achieve this.
We want to Rio in the car and is a great contribution to the team, we
would like to continue with the project”, recognizing however that
money is the key to everything. “Ultimately, everything is
reduces the budget, we will wait to see”.
The rumors that placed Stoffel Vandoorne in the Manor in
Hockenheim has grown this weekend at the Hungaroring, but
McLaren has denied that this will happen. Another of those named has
been Charles Leclerc, but the official position of the Manor remains
the do everything possible to continue to count with Rio Haryanto.
